Off to Kansas for Spa Week!



It's that time of year...time for Lady K and I to hit I-70 and make our way out to Dad's place in Ottawa, KS for what we, on my side of the immediate family, have dubbed Spa Week. My sister and her two boys come out from Chicago 'burbs, Mom comes up from her house in Fort Scott, KS and Lady K and I out from our Denver 'burb and we all meet up at Dad's. Typically, it's a week of building something for Dad, playing in his pool, going to the movies, digging in the dirt to add to Dad's landscape. This year it's more about maybe building one thing for Mom at her house and mostly about goofing off. I am bringing out the mosaic schtuff to work on the bowling balls Dad has from the closed bowling alley he and Mom found. We'll try our hand at making mirror balls of a sort. Also bringing paints to make some clay pots purdier. We plan on lots of movies and going roller skating. Still dig in the ground since we like to do that so much. Fun time had by all and Mom will cook up the fam favorites of fried chicken, tacos, chicken and noodles....and Seester and I will be hitting the bricks every morning to hammer out a walk for me and run for her to work off the fried chicken, tacos, and chicken and noodles.....


See ya when we get back!!
